Front outer cv boot leaking

image Look what I found today,,,we don’t see this too much anymore,,,this is a 535GT X Drive,,,the left front outer cv boot is torn and spraying grease all over the place,,,,we use to see this a lot with the first X5 E53,,,,,this was a common problem with those cars.image You can see it just spray grease everywhere,,,the worst part about this job is the clean up,,,,these new plastic type cv boots really never tear or leak,,,,this is very unusual for this type of car it only has 50k miles.imageyou can see the grease got onto the brake caliper,,,,also I found it on the brake pads,,,,so we replaced them also due to a safety issue.
